The Other Use for Gnomes

They aren't just for decorating any more folks!

I picked up "Velocity" by Dean Koontz and read the following.....

.....Ned Pearsall raised a toast to his deceased neighbor, Henry Friddle, whose death greatly pleased him.
Henry had been killed by a garden gnome. He had fallen off the roof of his two-story house, onto that cheerful-looking figure. The gnome was made of concrete. Henry wasn't.

You were all right! Lawn gnomes are evil! And Mr. Koontz is under their control. He's threatening us with death by lawn gnome. It's a warning to us all!

Who woulda thunk they'd make such good weapons too! Well....aside from many of you who tried to warn me of their evilness!

It's a planned take over between the gnomes and the squirrels. You can only save yourself by doing the legendary crane dance. LOL
